[personal profile] delphi posting in [community profile] hp_beholder
With this final post, [community profile] hp_beholder will be closing its doors. Seven years—what a run! (That's long enough, you may note, to complete a Hogwarts education.) I want to thank first and foremost [personal profile] bethbethbeth for creating this wonderful fest, which has been a home away from home for fans like me. I don't think there is anything I can do or say to properly convey how much joy I've found here.

Thank you to those who been here since the beginning, and to those who took part for the first time this year.

Thank you to every generous pinch-hitter and commenter.

Thank you to everyone who pioneered a pairing here, and to those who made someone's year by gifting them with their favourite rare ship.

Thank you to everyone who challenged themselves, indulged themselves, and took a chance on creating or enjoying something different.

Over the next year, I'll be working to clean up the tags and back up everything on Dreamwidth so that this wonderful collection will endure as an archive of some of the best, most original, and most thoughtful works the Harry Potter fandom has to offer. If you publish on AO3, please consider adding your work to the HP Beholder collection.
